Sun. Jan 15, Arizona Marketplace

Thanks for joining us in our journey of North America
 in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006 

 Where are we Today ?
        Cooler overnight and an overcast day today, highs about 68f (20c). But we don't mind after all its  January.  A nice morning walkabout the resort and spotted a few things. The first picture is of a trailer behind this coach. He tows a car on it, some kind is ultra lite (I believe) on top and a Harley Davidson motorcycle on the back of the coach, all the toys.
where's the boat?
        Then by the clubhouse we have the birdies bar, nobody there yet, its too early I think, Happy hour at 4.

         Then at 9:30 we picked up Rick and Suzie and headed into Yuma AZ. to the Arizona  Marketplace. a huge covered fleamarket with food vendors and live entertainment.

         We wandered around here for about three hours, shopping and looking, fresh air exercise, fun. Kinda cool no sunshine shine today and a few sprinkles of rain.
even a petting zoo
         We are now all walked and shopped out and worked up an appetite so decided to look for a warm place to sit inside and have a bite to eat for lunch. Cruising along 32nd st and 4th ave, every restaurant imaginable, we agreed on the Grand China for a Chinese buffet. Reasonably priced for a sunday, under $10.00 and they had a good selection, a fairly busy place and a constant supply of fresh hot food.

        So we sampled, tasted and more than had our fill of many sumptuous dishes. Chatted for a while then decided to head back home and relax for the afternoon. No need for supper tonight.
        We had a few things to tidy up this afternoon to get ready for a few weeks of dry camping in the desert at Quartzsite, leaving here in the morning. Where we will meet old friends, make new friends, relax, explore the flea markets and vendors and just generally enjoy life in the desert.

  1. even here in the Keys it only got up to 69F a few days ago, but like you said it is January and not a bad one so far at all...

  2. heyduke50:

    Yeah we see its kinda cool there so don't feel to bad here.

  3. Looks a bit cool, good day for your activity.

  4. Somehow I suspect that if the owner of that trailer could figure out a way to carry a boat, he'd do it. Or maybe it just wasn't important enough to add a third layer!


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
